With about a month to go before voting on policy recommendations, the Congressional Commission on Long-Term Care has drafted the first chapters of its report, commission staff director Larry Atkins said Tuesday.
The Congressional Commission on Long-Term Care convened for its third hearing last week, focusing on how Medicare, Medicaid and long-term care insurance interact, and potential ways to strengthen these payment mechanisms. Over roughly eight hours, the 15 commission members heard from a total of 15 subject matter experts on four separate panels.
With mere months to make progress on the deep issues facing the long-term care industry, the Congressional Long-Term Care Commission held its first official meeting Thursday. LTC stakeholders issued statements following the meeting focused on what the group might accomplish, declining to dwell on potential roadblocks it faces.
